Re: Naish Centipede strap multibag system

lol that's funny, I guess it could be useful for hiking. Sorry I don't know how it works. I always thought the extra strap were for carrying pump, I wonder if on my Best and Star bags i can do the centipede thingy. Though usually I carry only 1 bag at a time. I rarely need to bring 2 kites, usually ...

Re: First post- Looking at lessons

Those price aren't bad at all, it's difficult to do better in the area. Price are anywhere from 50 to 200 per hour. Most school would let you get the discount whatever happens, like you sign up for 3 hours and if you end up doing 2 days then you still get the $1400 discount price. Not sure what's th...

Re: Help picking first foil

Thanks, I have settled on Zeeko alloy with Shinn El Stubbo. I will probably have to borrow or find a cheap board to make learning a bit easier. Zeeko looks like a nice option to learn on and probably will never outgrow it since I am not looking for max speed or race. http://www.kiteboarder.co.uk/kit...

Re: Can't slow down

How do you head back to the beach and stop?
I see a lot of people bring the foil out of water and land on their ass. Jumping off the foil is another option? Push down on front foot until you are on water and keep kite high?

Re: How to post a found board in OBX

How is the board? Faded at all from sun and salt? Or still looks new?

Re: What new tricks to try?

You should probably work on late loop stuff, Heli looo, downloop, strong forward redirect with back loop, overall that really improve your kite control. Front roll are fun, you can try them while keeping kite lower, when powered on flat water you can get them without moving kite. I'm planning to wor...

Re: How frequently do you disassemble and clean your foil?

Yeah, Tef Gel is anti corrosion. Need to cover all the threads. You want it to act as a galvanic barrier so it needs to be between the two dissimilar metals wherever they come in contact. In other words, goop em up pretty good. The stuff is greasy and coats well. Ok thanks, I think I got confused w...

Re: New York

If you are living in NY it's only a matter of time before you move to Florida. May as well save yourself some time and just move straight there! lol, is there even wind in Florida? Looks mostly light wind. Traveled a few times in January but haven't been lucky wind wise, always miss it by a few days.
